'Old King Football' Goes Out in Style
The gridiron season apparently
went out this fall on an artistic
note as scholars on American cam-
puses took brush in hand and
vented their emotions on digni-
fied statues, crusty edifices and
Tommy Trojan, monument on
the University of Southern Cali-
fornia was the worst victim. UCLA
students plastered him with gal-
lons of high-grade paint and then
daubed the, sticky surface with
feathers, according to the Daily
* * *
THE GREAT RIVALRY be-
tweeen the two schools swayed and
almost cracked as USC officials
listed the cost of scraping 'Tommy'
and assorted campus buildings the
vandals had used the remainder of
their paint on at more than $1,-
The Daily Trojan and Daily
Bruin, at UCLA, joined forces to
clean up the rivalry and at last
word the two institutions are on
the verge of a non-aggression act.
EVEN THE SEDATE 'environs'
of Harvard were splashed with
Brown paint when scholars of that
school decided it was time for a
drastic change on the oldest cam-
pus in the United States.
The Brown College students-+
caught Brown -handed - were
promptly made to kick the ac-1
ademic bucket and dip into their
pockets for more than $200 to
pay for paint-remover, according
to the Harvard Crimson.

STUDENTS of Utah University
woke one morning to find that the
block "U" that adorns the hill to
the northeast of their campus was
whitewashed over during the night
with a "W".
Utah redskins considered scalp-

might be hanging around with a
loose parting, according to the

MOST SUPREME outburst of
collegiate nonsense came before
two hard-luck ball clubs, the Pur-
due Boilermakers and the Hoosiers
of Indiana kicked off for the tra-
ditional Old Oaken Bucket.
The Hoosiers planned the fu-
neral of "Old Jawn Purdue" in
grand style and the metalsmiths
elaborately prepared for the
cremation of "Miss Indiana."
As things approached the
gurgling point, one of the two
student publications printed this
cryptic headline: "I.U. VS. P.U.
Indiana students climaxed the
rivalry by dropping leaflets on the
Purdue campus. "What the Hell
can you expect-with a kid prexy
from deah old Oxford, with a
bunch of hick students with no
spirit, with an inexperienced high
school coaching staff, with eleven
old men . . . flops of the year?
I.U. 40, Cow College 0.
Incidentally, Purdue took the
hide off 'deah old' Indiana, 39-0.
